There is no question that Disaster Denial is a common ailment. Even those that prepare – and prepare well – ponder whether a disaster could really happen to them and to their families and if, at the end of the day, all of their preps are worth it.
In todays blast from the near past, I share an article I wrote listing the myriad of disasters that could happen. There is everything from natural disasters, to economic collapse, to technology failures (been there, done that) to weapons of mass destruction. As I was reading the article myself, I was reminded of the everyday calamities that could turn my life upside down – as it could yours. This is worth a second look.
THE FINAL WORD
From time to time I feature bonus articles that are buried in the Backdoor Survival archives. I hope you enjoy this one.
Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!
